February Painting Of A Sunflower, Step One
This afternoon I finished painting over the charcoal sketch of the sunflower I had put down awhile ago. I used Burnt Sienna thinned with Linseed Oil, primarily because I had run out of Burnt Umber. The painting is on an 18" X 24" pre-stretched canvas that was treated with a thin coat of gesso. With the underpainting complete, I will start with the background as soon as the underpainting is dry to the touch.
